farming method which releases ducklings to eliminate harmful insects
and weeds in the farm and use their feces to fertilize the soil.
Ducklings, instead of pesticides and chemical fertilizers,

fertilizers that improve the quality of the soil. Using the
Duckling Method, the farmers can provide healthy rice to consumers.

allowed by safety regulations. Also, residual chemicals are
cut down to half of what is permitted by the Minister of Health
and Welfare according to the Food Sanitation Act.
